Call For Papers

Call for Papers Linking Organized Crime and Cybercrime
7-8 June 2018, Hallym University (Chuncheon, South Korea)

Submissions are now open for the academic conference, ‘Linking Organized Crime and Cybercrime (LOCC) 2018’, supported by the United Nations office on Drugs and Crime.

The goal of LOCC 2018 is to produce novel insights into the linkages between organized and cyber crime. Organized criminal groups have increasingly adopted technology to commit offences, and new types of crime are also made possible through new technologies. This conference is concerned with the way that organized crime, including trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants, is enabled or supported by technology.

LOCC 2018 is generously hosted by the Hallym University and sponsored by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) under its Education for Justice (E4J) initiative. The E4J forms part of the Global Programme for the Implementation of the Doha Declaration, adopted by the Thirteenth United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in 2015, which recognizes the fundamental role of universal education for children and youth as key to the prevention of crime, terrorism and corruption, as well as sustainable development.

Topics of Interest
Research papers on the following topics are being sought (with preference given to case studies):
• Organized crime enabled/supported by technology
◦ Including but not limited to: money laundering, corruption, obstruction of justice, trafficking in drugs as well as participation in an organized criminal group (i.e. how technology enables/facilitates/shapes/changes participation).
• Trafficking in persons and smuggling of migrants enabled/supported by technology
• New / emerging types of organized crime in cyberspace
◦ Including but not limited to: wildlife trafficking, trafficking in cultural property, production and sale of falsified medical products and counterfeit goods (such as foodstuff, clothing, electronics, etc.)

Education for Justice
The E4J initiative ( aims to build a culture of lawfulness amongst children and youth through the provision of age-appropriate educational materials on topics related to criminal justice and crime prevention, including organized crime, human trafficking and migrant smuggling, cybercrime, and the integration of those materials into the curricula of primary, secondary and tertiary education levels.

This event will explore insights and produce material for tertiary education, which includes universities and higher vocational institutes. At the tertiary level, E4J aims to develop modules and materials that support academics in their teaching and research activities related to UNODC mandate areas.
